Dynamic Metrics Selection

Can someone help in creating dynamic table based on user selection (ala a carte metrics)

Based on user selection the table should change dynamically and only show those metrics seleted by user.

Lets say I have 10 Metrics in my slicer and user selects only 5 metrics, table should only show 5 metrics selected by user.

hi, @venkatramp

First, you should know that calculated column and calculate table can't be affected by any slicer. you could create a measure instead of column.

Notice:

1. Calculation column/table not support dynamic changed based on filter or slicer.
2. Measure can be affected by filter/slicer, so you can use it to get dynamic summary result.

here is reference:

Second, you want to change the table dynamic, you could just use Parameters in Power BI to change the parameter and refresh the dataset.

This is the tutorial for you to refer to
